Your iPhone isn’t a BlackBerry, but it can fake it with the Typo 2

The iPhone’s answer to the BlackBerry keyboard, the Ryan Seacrest-backed Typo, is back. Like the first model, the Typo 2 turns your Apple smartphone into one with a QWERTY keyboard.

But the second version is a bit different — and this makes sense, considering Typo was hit with a lawsuit and pulled off the market for having a design too close to BlackBerry’s existing keyboard.

Seacrest and Typo cofounder Laurence Hallier developed the concept after realizing how some people lug around two phones: one for typing and correspondence and an iPhone for most everything else. The two developed the case for BlackBerry fans who’ve resisted switching to the iOS because of loyalty to a physical keyboard.

When White People See Themselves With Black Skin, Something Interesting Happens

The antidote to racism partly lies in empathy, or the willingness to “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes,” as the saying goes. But scientists from universities across Europe are taking the maxim one step further, providing people an opportunity to experience life in someone else’s skin by experimenting with virtual reality as a means of helping people shed racial stereotypes.

Researchers from London and Barcelona teamed up to discuss their recent experiments on virtual reality and race in an opinion piece for the journal Trends in Cognitive Sciences, published Dec. 15. The researchers found that if people got the chance to physically experience their own body with different skin colors (or ages and sexes), their unconscious biases against other racial groups could be diminished.

This isn’t merely a question of changing mentality or perception. The experience of “living” in different skin triggers sensory signals in the brain that allow it to expand its understanding of what a body can look like. This can “cause people to change their attitudes about others,” wrote the study’s co-researcher, Professor Mel Slater, a part-time professor of virtual environments at the University College London and research professor at the University of Barcelona.

Not all foods are created equal when it comes to the impact on body weight. Some are higher in calories than others. Others are tougher to eat in small portions. Still others are both rich in calories and impossible to consume in small amounts—which spells double trouble for the waistline.

So when you load up on these foods day after day, it’s not surprising that your weight goes up. Portion control is the best solution but there are ways to enjoy these foods in more healthy ways.

The Evolutionary Reason Why We Love Sitting By A Crackling Fire

Relaxing in front of a crackling fire (or at least the Netflix version) is one of the most enjoyable ways to spend a cold winter evening. And now scientists know why.

Watching a fire lowers blood pressure, according to new University of Alabama research. Our enjoyment of gazing at fire may be rooted in evolution, as the act of gathering around a fire dates back to prehistoric times.

The researchers, led by anthropologist Christopher Lynn, asked 226 adults to watch a video of a fireplace, and took their blood pressure before and after watching the video. They also asked participants to report on their experiences of the fire.

This State’s Review Of The Death Penalty Reveals The Shocking Cost Of Executing A Prisoner

An audit conducted by the state of Nevada shows the cost of death penalty cases is nearly twice as much as murder cases where a lesser penalty is sought.

The audit, which focused on 28 murder cases in two Nevada counties between 2000 and 2012, concluded that the death penalty costs about $532,000 more than non-death penalty cases. The report cited the additional time and resources needed when the death penalty is sought as reasons for the escalated cost.

“These cases are more costly because there are procedural safeguards in place to ensure the sentence is just and free from error,” the audit stated.

On Amazon and eBay old iPods are priced many times higher than they were originally listed, The Guardian first reported. Three thousand iPod Classics have been sold on eBay since Apple discontinued the device.

Gunfire erupted as police stormed a chocolate shop where a self-professed sheik was holding hostages in Sydney early Tuesday.

An intelligence source named the gunman as Man Haron Monis, who is also known as Sheikh Haron. He appeared to be making demands to negotiators through Facebook, YouTube and local news media.

Monis has been convicted of penning offensive letters to the families of Australian soldiers slain during the war in Afghanistan. A black flag used by Islamist groups in the Middle East had been shown in the window of the Lindt cafe.

ভালোবাসা থাকে না। খুব সুন্দর 'বাসা' দেখে 'ভালো' রা চলে যায়। খারাপ ছেলের ম্যাচের কাঠি ফস করে জ্বলে ওঠে। তাদের প্রেম উড়ে যায়! কুৎসিত কুকুর ছানা হয়ে সারা রাত কুই কুই করে শীতে। বুক ভরা মায়া দিয়ে কেও তাদের মৃত্যু আটকায় না। ভালবাসা ঘুমায়, উষ্ণ কাপড় পরে। তারা ঠাণ্ডা হাত ধরে না।
